Laser Hair Removal
Imagine reducing unwanted body hair, safely and easily, with proven long-term results. Say goodbye to your razor, and hello laser!
Laser hair removal works by targeting hair with pulses of energy that reach into the hair follicles beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.
At BodyTech Beauty, we utilize state-of-the-art technology to customize laser hair removal treatment to your skin and hair type.
Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal
Shaving the day before or just prior to treatment is recommended and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your provider tells you otherwise.

Typically, 8-12 treatments are adequate to provide patient satisfactory hair reduction (some individuals require less treatments). However, after a one-on-one consultation, your BodyTech Medical Aesthetician may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.
Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 8 to 12 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
